“I knew what I had to do and that I had to follow my heart, but the thought of sending Ben home broke my heart,” Bristowe wrote in her latest blog post for People. “It’s not that what I had with Ben wans’t real or didn’t mean anything to me, but I had to make a choice of how I was going to move forward.”
Read more about Bristowe’s decision — and the ongoing drama between Nick and Shawn — over at People, and watch The Bachelorette when it airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
